Gary Shteyngart on “the near future”: Nation 7/18

JW: The Village Voice called Super Sad True Love Story “the finest piece of anti-iPhone propaganda ever written.”

GS: I was a person like Lenny, fairly analogue, and to research this book I hired an assistant who got me an iPhone, and got me on Facebook and Twitter. I went from somebody who didn’t want to have anything to do with this new technology to somebody who became wildly addicted to it. Then, after finishing this book, I began developing strategies for not being online all the time.

Do you have any advice for people with the same problem? . . . contined at HERE
